A new side of London

27 Nov

Southwark_London_4We knew the Thames. Who doesn’t? You go to London, you see the Thames. You pay no attention, though. There’s so much to see that the river just goes unnoticed. But last weekend we really experienced a new perspective of London where the river was the absolute focus. From Canada Water to Tower Bridge, we saw the Thames full of life, yet really quiet. Boats that sailed extremely fast mixed with slow river cruises. The cartoon-like skyscrapers of the City and the almost arrogant majesty of Tower bridge. The bustle and stillness that in a few minutes make the Thames look extremely different. Continue reading

Art worth travelling for

26 Jun

art
Travelling makes you learn and appreciate art in all its forms. While there are cities that are works of art themselves, we always pay attention to the calendars of our favourite museums before planning our trips. Nowadays, there are three exhibitions that we’d love to visit:

Henri Matisse: the Cut-outs
This exhibition showcases more than 100 pieces created by Matisse between 1936 and 1954. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the last years of his career, when he started “drawing with scissors”.
Tate Modern, London
17 April – 7 September 2014

Pop Art Myths
Legendary images that looks into the sources of international Pop Art: its myths, irony and innovative perceptions. This exhibition features Warhol, Rauschenberg, Wesselmann, Lichtenstein, Hockney, Hamilton and Equipo Crónica among others.
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid
10 June – 14 Septembre 2014

Irving Penn, Resonance
Overview of Irving Penn’s work, mixing both unknown and iconic images. Ethnographic photographs and portraits of celebrities, questioning the meaning of time, life and its fragility.
Palazzo Grassi, Venice
Until 31 December 2014

mmm… Monday! Sticks and sushi, London

Stick_n_Sushi_2

A few weeks ago we enjoyed a night out in London which involved a traditional British wine bar and a fantastic Japanese restaurant. Globalization, huh? We ate the most delicios Ebi bites and drank Sake cockails… but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start from the beginning: Gordon’s Wine Bar, the oldest wine bar in London.

Welcome to the second chapter of our gourmet Marylebone series! A couple of weeks ago we finally tried Patty & Bun burgers. We’ve heard a lot about them and we had seen the queue on the street so we wanted to know what all the fuss was about.

During our last trip to London we stayed again in our beloved Mandeville Hotel. The room was great, the staff was super friendly (Hi Marco!) and the attention was impeccable. Being our favorite London headquarters in the Marylebone area, we decided to explore it and make the most of it.

La Fromagerie_3

Today we are going to share with you our new favourite place in the world. The place where we had one of the loveliest dinners we’ve ever had. A couple of weeks ago, we were wandering through Marylebone village when we came across this cheese shop. We loved it immediately and when we saw a little poster saying that on Monday and Friday nights they open for cheese and charcuterie tasting we new we had a plan for the evening. It sounded so friendly: no reservations, just bring your friends.
